The must-read summary of “The Fountain: A Doctor’s Prescription to Make 60 the New 30,” by Rocco Monto, MD.

Over the last century, medicine has helped us all live longer. The problem is that our health span hasn’t kept pace. Heart disease, hypertension, strokes, renal disease, diabetes, fractures are more common. Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, and depression are rising. Doctors continue to treat the symptoms of diseases while the causes go unmanaged. People are just surviving, not thriving, at the end of their lives.

In The Fountain, Dr. Monto questions the established doctrines of traditional medicine that have brought us to this point. He explains why we age so poorly and how the latest breakthroughs in science and medicine can change this. Debunking long-held diet and fitness myths while highlighting safe, effective therapies backed by leading-edge research, Dr. Monto provides us with a practical plan that could help us live a longer, healthier, happier, and more productive life.

Sample text:

Sardinia is the second largest island 222 miles off the west coast of Italy in the Mediterranean Sea. Most of its 1.6 million residents live near its coastlines, with a secluded population living in the isolated central mountain region. The estimated life expectancy of this secluded population is much higher than the rest of the world. 21 people per 10,000 live to age 100, compared to only 1.73 in the United States. Their traditional diet is high in complex carbohydrates, grass-fed goat, sheep milk, and cheese. Although they don’t eat a calorie-restricted diet, the oldest Sards have lived through decades of famine due to war, poverty, and disease. The average Sand eats meat only once or twice a week and drinks 8 to 12 ounces of red wine daily. Many live in vertical homes that require heavy climbing, and the average 80+-year-old male Sard shepherd walks over 5 miles every day on demanding terrain.
